Comment on: Exercise capacity assessed with the one-minute sit-to-stand test (1-min STST) and echocardiographic findings in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF)

Published:January 10, 2023DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.hrtlng.2022.12.017
      I read the research by Christina Kronberger et al. entitled "Exercise capacity assessed with the one-minute sit-to-stand test (1-min STST) and echocardiographic findings in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF)" with great enthusiasm. It was fortunate to read this work, and the author's efforts are to be applauded.

      Exercise capacity assessed with the one-minute sit-to-stand test (1-min STST) and echocardiographic findings in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF).
      We concur with the conclusion that the 1-min STST may have clinical value for clinicians in decision-making regarding follow-up visits and optimizing medical care. Due to the ease of use of the 1-min STST in an outpatient context, we concur with this result. However, we are compelled to mention more points that would enhance the quality of this text and expand previous information.
